Known play Learn more about this play
After a harsh beginning of child labour in an unforgiving world of adults, a little chimney sweep’s suffering ends when he is transformed into a water baby. As he plunges into a surreal aquatic world of fish, caterpillars and caddisflies, follow his adventures in the murky depths and become immersed in his floating dream. Performed entirely to specially commissioned music, String Theatre uses long string marionettes and ghostly shadows, to explore the themes of loss, friendship and transformation.
The production is inspired by the novel (of the same name) by Charles Kingsley.
